Evolving a Mobile Implementation Strategy – Martin Fowler & Giles Alexander

By now we all know an app isn’t a mobile strategy, but equally ‘hybrid’ or ‘web’ aren’t mobile implementation strategies. An effective implementation approach for your mobile strategy will take into account many factors, but will balance two key ones. And most importantly, it will evolve over time.

Giles Alexander
Principal Consultant and Mobile Lead (Europe) – ThoughtWorks
During the last three years of working for ThoughtWorks across Australia, the US, India and the UK, I have specialised in mobile: strategy, architecture and applications. As well as being the principal maintainer of the cross-platform mobile framework Calatrava, I have also helped shape mobile implementation strategy for one of the world’s largest airlines; and built banking apps for a major US retail bank. Prior to ThoughtWorks, I worked at a number of innovative startups and R&D companies where I helped prototype a revolutionary iPhone accessory; and found an early location-based mobile start-up.
